More time with the family

M. S., Canada

February 5, 2015

I have not even completed my novena to St. Josemaria for my husband to get a job closer to where we live but he has granted us the favor nevertheless. I am grateful that my husband will not spend too much time on the road and have more time with the family. As always St. Josemaria continues to watch over our large family.

A vacancy

C., Chile

January 21, 2015

In November 2014 my son Santiago began a Novena for Work. He prayed with great faith and on November 20, in the firm where I work, they announced a vacancy for an assistant. Some of my colleagues were also looking for jobs for their children, so I checked to see if they were interested, and they told me that they weren’t. My son started work on November 24. Thank you, St Josemaria!

No job prospects

K., Poland

January 20, 2015

I was unemployed for a very long time and with no job prospects. At a given moment I found the prayer to St Josemaria and decided to entrust my petitions to him. I prayed through his intercession every day. After two months, Jesus granted me the grace to get a job in my field of work.

A tumor

A. M., Portugal

January 7, 2015

In March 2014 I was diagnosed with a tumor on the right kidney and although it was controlled it was nearly 7 cm and they told me I would have to have the kidney removed. I always pray to St Josemaria every day, but at that point I prayed with great faith that everything would be all right and the tumor would not be cancerous. I had the operation at the beginning of May. When I heard the results of the analysis I could hardly believe it: it was a benign tumor. The doctors told me that it was a very uncommon case. I am eternally grateful to St Josemaria.

I work in a financial institution

L. Y. F., Cameroon

December 29, 2014

I worked for many years in firms that paid me very little. I resigned from my last job because of the way they treated me – a boss tried to get me to handle money dishonestly. I suffered a lot until a friend offered me a job at the end of a novena I made to the Divine Mercy. I prayed the novena to Saint Josemaria to entrust this new job to him. After one week someone in my family called me with another job in a financial institution: it was exactly the job I had always dreamed of. I am really happy, and my colleagues value me. May the name of Jesus Christ be forever blessed! Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Saint Josemaria!

My son’s job

M. L., France

December 29, 2014

My son could not support his family with the gunsmith’s business he was managing. He closed it down and found a temporary job in a firm that he liked a lot because of the friendly atmosphere and good work ethic. I did several novenas to pester St. Josemaria and our Lord, and in the end they offered him a new post that is to be created especially for him and which matches his skills. I immediately booked a Mass of Thanksgiving and now I am doing more novenas for other young people I know who are unemployed.

Since 2005

RM., France

December 23, 2014

I have been praying through St Josemaria’s intercession since 2005 and from this summer, when I lost my job, I intensified my prayers. I have had several interviews – something that had not happened for a long time, although I was constantly looking for a job. For the past month I’ve been working at a temporary job in my sector, but the person I’m replacing is due back in a few weeks. I have the verbal promise of another job after that, and although it is not in my speciality and will not be a fixed contract, it is just next to where I live, so it will be the first time I’ve not had to travel over 100 kilometers from home! I am sure that St Josemaria will help me to find something in my own sector after that. I trust him completely. I would also like to say that I was baptized on Sunday November 23. St Josemaria and Don Alvaro have always helped me. A million thanks to these two saints.

A healthy little girl

Thanks to St. Josemaria we have had a healthy little girl. They told us we would have problems because the oxygen was not getting to the placenta. I prayed through St. Josemaria’s intercession and promised to go to Torreciudad and our little girl is quite healthy.

Jobs for three people

L. G. C, Spain

December 1, 2014

Two years ago my husband was dismissed by the firm he had worked in for 27 years. We have been fighting for his rights but so far with no success. Some months later, my son also lost his job. The situation was very difficult because, as well as this, my son-in-law had been unemployed for 5 years. Two weeks ago my son got a job in a company and a week later the same company had another job vacancy. My son spoke to his boss about the possibility of taking on his father and they gave him the preliminary medical check before hiring him. The only problem was that he needed a certain form from his old firm, who refused to give it to him. We tried by other channels, but still with no result. Without that form, my husband couldn’t get the job! I was on the point of collapse, because he is 58 and this could well be the only chance he would get. Then I turned to the prayer-card of Saint Josemaria Escriva, praying with total faith that we could please obtain that form. The deadline was approaching and I could see we weren’t going to make it… I prayed the prayer-card intensely, and within ten minutes my son called to say they’d got the form. Straight after that, my son-in-law also found a job. So I will never stop thanking God and Saint Josemaria for his help at that time.

It came into my hands by chance

M., Spain

November 25, 2014

During the days of Don Alvaro del Portillo’s beatification, there came into my hands, quite by chance, a prayer-card of Saint Josemaria. It had been given to a friend in the hotel where we both worked. At that point I wanted, with all my heart, to change my job and I had been looking for a job for a long time. When I got the prayer-card I started reading it and found myself totally absorbed in it. I prayed that I would be accepted for a job I had been interviewed for shortly before. A week later I got a call offering me the job contract. I am sure it is a miracle by St Josemaria, and as a result I am saying his prayer every day.
